Lyrics

Coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta-gotta be down, because I want it all

It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss

Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke, and she's taking a drag

Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick, and it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now, let me go

And I just can't look
It's killing me, and taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis, but it's just the price I pay

Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

Coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta-gotta be down, because I want it all

It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
(It was only a kiss) It was only a kiss

Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke, and she's taking a drag

Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick, and it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now, let me go

'Cause I just can't look
It's killing me, and taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis, but it's just the price I pay

Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

I never, I never, I never, I never
